Chicken Divan

This is a recipe that we really enjoy at our house. It is originally from a cookbook that Gwen's grade 12 class put together. I like to make enough for two meals; we eat it over rice one time, and over pasta the next. Sometimes I omit the chicken bouillon and use chicken stock in place of part of the milk.

Supposedly it takes more calories to chew this than the salad provides!

This salad can be prepared in many ways.  Perhaps Bev is including her recipe that she shared with us when we visited John and Gena in 1985.  I used memories of that and the recipe Nellie Ann shared with at our Christmas 1992 to mix up a version we enjoyed for dinner at Lyle’s apartment, 2809 Lincoln Way Apt 309 in Sioux City, on the day of his graduation from Morningside College.  We also made a similar salad for Sunday dinner at Lisa and Lana’s apartment after helping them move to 421 Bowery Street #2 in Iowa City.  On that occasion I enjoyed an early morning walk about 12 blocks each way to get sunflower seeds and dressing.


Arlo has enjoyed some cooking experience in Home Ec. at school.  He made this for us for supper once.

These are a favourite I “discovered” one day while making supper.  The two recipes were on top of each other and I accidentally combined them.  They were a hit, and when mom went to make them another time, she found out what I had done and improvised as well.

Mom and I love main dishes loaded with lots of vegetables.  We served this for supper when Dawn, Rachel, Jon, and Erika visited our house in celebration of Gert’s birthday.

This was a handout from a store taste test.  It was a chilly and damp day.  Yum!
